A brave lady walking 22 miles for the Baton and SSAFA Devon – Sunday October 15th 2017

On Sunday October 15th Kirsty-ann Johnstone’s challenge to herself is to walk 22 miles from Buckfastleigh to the Citadel Plymouth carrying a Baton where she hopes friends will be there to see her in, Alan will be walking all the way with her. Kirsty is aiming to complete the walk in approximately 7 and a half hours.

When Kirsty needed support the Baton was there and with Alan’s SSAFA VP Devon hat on, able to support further. Kirsty is a member of the Plymouth Military Wives Choir and has been through and still suffers a tremendous amount of pain, especially through Fibromyalgia which can be very debilitating.

The Baton Dinner

The Baton Black Tie Charity Dinner 2018 Saturday October 27th at Lake View Manor.  £48 per seat for a 3 Course Meal, Wine on the table a Raffle, small Auction and a super disco to finish.

What an incredible success last year’s dinner was, very much a family of like minds gathering and and we are really looking forward to meeting old friends and making new ones from across the UK and further, this year there will be much more time for dancing and strutting your stuff 😀

If, as last year, the venue’s accommodation becomes fully booked, we have further rooms available reserved in the town, we would suggest the Honiton Premier Inn for starters, for anyone there we will be laying on transport to and from the venue for a Baton donation to the driver.

FOR ALL ENQUIRIES Reservations, Payment Details and Menu  please contact thebastionbaton@googlemail.com

Launch of the Tandem

The Tandem will soon be available on loan at no cost to qualifying people encouraging them to be active, even if they are raising funds for another charity – though a donation towards running costs/maintenance would obviously be appreciated
